For the second time this year, Brookside Homes was awarded the 2016 Best Home Builder in The Daily Item’s first Readers’ Choice Best of the Valley contest. Brookside had been awarded the Gold Readers’ Choice Award from the Milton Standard Journal in June.

The Daily Item’s contest featured three phases – the nomination phase where readers nominated their top choices in more than 70 categories, the tabulation phase where the newspaper tabulated the nominations and advanced the top three nominees in each category, and the voting phase where readers voted for the winner within the top three nominees of each category.

The Daily Item hosted a Red Carpet Event on November 9, 2016, where Brookside Homes’ co-owners Randy Davis and Steve Wagner were presented with Brookside’s award. The top winners were officially announced in the November 11, 2016 issue of the paper.

“We’re so grateful for our wonderful customers,” said Wagner. “It’s an honor for us to be able to help build homes for our customers. It’s typically the biggest investment someone makes in their lifetime, and we enjoy helping people through the design and build process.”

“We work with all of our team members, from the sales consultants to the field crew to the office staff, on listening to our customers, being responsive and doing the best job possible,” noted Davis. “Each customer is different and has different needs, wants and desires; we try to be flexible enough to meet all of those different expectations while consistently delivering a positive customer experience and a high-quality home.”

Both Davis and Wagner agree a large part of Brookside’s success has been its dedication to customer satisfaction. Said Davis, “Almost three-quarters of our customers were referred to us by a family member, friend or co-worker who previously built with Brookside. It’s great that our customers feel like they belong to the Brookside family and want others to join them.” Wagner added, “In addition to new customer referrals, we also have a steady stream of repeat customers who have built multiple homes with us. As their lives and needs changed over time, we’re glad they liked the Brookside experience enough to have us build for them again. That’s pretty amazing.”
